Legal Q&A | Importance of the final walk-through inspection

QUESTION: I recently represented a buyer who entered into a contract to purchase a residential property. The buyer decided not to conduct a final walk-through inspection because of other obligations, and proceeded to closing without that inspection. The buyer received the keys at closing. When he went to his new home, he discovered that the seller had taken the stove. After the buyer called me, I reviewed the contract and confirmed that the stove was indeed supposed to convey with the home pursuant to paragraph 2 of Standard Form 2-T. My client has asked me what he should do now. What should I tell him?
